Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Friday said that "foreign elements" were involved in the October 30 serial blasts in the state in which 84 people were killed.

"As the government has found clues of involvement of foreign elements, action will be taken against any outfit whether it is HUJI or the ULFA... None will be spared", Gogoi said after distributing cheques of rupees three lakh to the relatives of the victims died in Kokrajhar blast.

"The foreign elements have to be identified and the high level investigating teams and agencies from various angles and stages have started investigation in the right direction", the chief minister said.

"Further investigations are on and the government is determined to stamp out terrorism from the state", he said.

The government has decided to gear up its counter-insurgency activities and police has been asked to keep a "responsible vigil as any lapse will amount to strong action", he said.
